EMMERDALE fans think they’ve caused a BIG change after The Bill and Footballers’ star Ben Richards’ debut.
The actor, 49, appeared on the ITV show for the first time last night as Al Chapman’s business partner, Gavin.
As viewers will know, Al bought a stake in The Woolpack and plans to turn the pub into a luxury apartment.
During a soap purchase on Thursday night, one of his business partners came to the village.
Gavin, played by new Ben Richards as Emmerdale, wants to know what’s going on.
As he drove past Al in his big car, he said, “A little bird on the council said things didn’t look right.”
Al replied, “It’s just a small bump in the road. I’ll sort it out.”
But Gavin revealed he was growing impatient as he said: “It’s just, we think we’ve waited long enough.
“People have a lot of money out of this, so you need to keep it going.”
Title: “We’re a bit sick of all you’re saying. Those are the actions we want now – dates, a plan. Anything other than this mess.”
Worried Al asks for a few more days and Gavin tells him they won’t make the plan next year.
While many fans of the film are interested in how Al’s plans will play out, others speculate that Gavin is Chloe Harris’ father not as much as is said about him.
One wrote: “Is Chloe’s dad threatening Al in the car?”
Another said: “Is this guy threatening Al who turns out to be Chloe’s dad???”
The third said: “Is that Chloe’s father? Knowing they would link those two together.”
Ben rose to fame in the early 90s when he starred in a number of musicals such as Up on the Roof, Hot Mikado and Grease.
He then guest-starred in Doctors and Holby City.
But one of his most memorable characters was Bruno Milligan on ITV’s Footballer’s Wives from 2005 to 2006.
He then joined Holby City as Justin Fuller and later played Nate Roberts in The Bill from 2007 to 2010.
